    I've shot the Limb Driver for 5 years and I know I have setup 100's. IMO there is nothing better with everything considered.

    I'm with Dan, my Limbdriver has served me well in both hunting and tournaments throughout the years! And you don't have worry about the wind with them. As far as which is better, try them both and see what you like! I honestly think it is a preference thing and what your equipment likes.

    Good luck on you decision!

    Removed my limb driver and put my doodle game dropper on set the spring
    so it holds the arrow up at full draw seems to work fine i think i will stick with the the kentucky made rest.

    You guys need to get over the wind thing with a blade rest....shoot the correct blade and draw your bow under control and correctly and drawing the bow with a blade isn't an issue even in the wind..... Otherwise all the videos on YouTube of the FITA shoots would be nothing but people fighting to get their bows drawn back.

    If you like a drop away that's great...good for you. But don't blame a rest for shooter issues.

    I use a limb driver on both my tournement bow and my hunting bow and have not had a problem with either one. Can't go wrong with Vaportrail rests.

    Very interesting points from both sides here. I've never used a blade rest enough to get completely comfortable with one. I do like limbdriver rests. Have them on all but one of my bows and I plan to put the pro v on my hunting rig this year. Maybe someday I'll take the time and set up a now correctly with a blade rest. I understand the advantage to one. But for now I'll stick withy limbdrivers. They've been easy to set up and I have never had any issues with them

    It seems to me that the people that has used the limb driver rest has had no problems with them so why would a person want to change something that isnt broke? I like my limb driver rest for both 3d and hunting. simple to use and set up

    Most folks that run into problems with the arrows falling off of the blades are either running to weak of a blade or they have it set up to flat.

    Just got the AAE ProDrop. I have not set it up yet, but it is very nice. I will most likely have that on my next bow.

    After removing the home made lizzard and installing the OEM unit, I noticed that the rest was not dropping fast enough and may have even needed contact to get it to drop. Just might have to give the concept one more chance.

    Still have a limb driver.
    But I am considering the Firenock AeroRest
    or spot hogg Edge.
    The AeroRest can be shot without the top "finger". The micro-adjust version should be ready soon.
    I like the idea of adjusting the tension on each side of the arrow, the free floating ceramic balls, the minimal points of contact with the arrow. I just do not like shooting **** vane down, I get some contact with the hen vane on my big chin!

    Any thoughts out there on the Aerorest?

    A lot of rests have improved over the last few years and new rests on the market give lots of choices. While there are things I don't like about the Limb Driver it is still one of the Best options out there.

    I think limb drivers are great...just wish they had micro adj, and attached to the lower limb.

    The Micro adjust is not that big of a deal to me. it usually just makes the rest heavier and more expensive. I have never saw much of an advantage when tuning.
    I do wish they made a model to attach to the lower limb as the most trouble I have experienced with the rest is attaching to the top limb with an HHA, Tight Spot, etc. It just gets crowded

    we've had Limbdrivers and they are great, until they fail. Hub had one fail at a tournament, now he only uses a launcher - either a Trophy taker ss pro or the Spot Hog Edge. But on his hunting rig is still a limbdriver.
